State Rep. Kent Calfee, R-Kingston, was among the 46 legislators who won a total of $8,300 in donations for charities in their communities during the Tennessee Health Care Association’s annual “Partnering for Charity” event.
Calfee won $150 for The Michael Dunn Center.
The lawmakers took turns spinning a giant wheel to earn contributions to charities of their choice throughout the state, including schools, churches, senior centers and other organizations.
Each year, the charity giveaway is a highlight of THCA’s Legislative Conference, an event that brings long-term care professionals together with state lawmakers to discuss what it takes to provide quality services for the state’s elderly and disabled.
“Each year, we look forward to this event with our legislators,” THCA Executive Director Jesse Samples said.
“Partnering with them to raise money for local charities is a good way for all of us to give back to the communities we serve.”
THCA is a nonprofit association representing long-term care facilities throughout the state.
